Getting Started

Media Assets (files and images)

Assets pane is on the Right side of the CMS UIMedia assets are images and documents that you can add to your web pages and are stored within the CMS. Assets are available from the assets pane in the CMS, making it easy to drag-and-drop items to upload them to the CMS as well as drag-and-drop them into your content page.

You can work directly with items in the assets pane to create and edit files, images or blocks, or create folders to organize content items. The context menu will provide different options depending on the type of assets selected. How to work with content items in the assets pane is described in the sections:

  • Folders - structuring your media and blocks
  • Media - searching for, uploading, previewing, etc.
  • Blocks - creating, editing, adding to content, etc.

Regarding images, you can edit, crop, set the alignment of images in the image editor when working with images in the WYSIWYG editor. 

You can also set other information for images, such as the hero slider information, in the properties view of the image.
